diy antiblemish elixir

This is another fabulous DIY found in the book, Organic Body Care Recipes. I have been using it for a couple weeks now when a pesky pimple pops up. When applied at night, the blemish reduces in size and redness by the next morning. I found the ingredients mentioned below at vitacost.com, Whole Foods, and amazon.com.

Ingredients:

  • 4 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 2 drops clove essential oil
  • 2 drops german chamomile essential oil
  • 2 drops green myrtle essential oil
  • 2 teaspoons apricot kernel base oil
  • 1 teaspoon almond base oil
  • 1 ounce dark glass bottle with dropper top

Instructions:

  • combine all ingredients in the glass bottle
  • shake bottle vigorously for 2 minutes
  • store the elixir in a dark spot that's between 60 and 80º for 24 hours so that the ingredients can synergize
  • put a drop onto the blemish at night and sleep with the treatment on. wash off in the morning
  • use within 6 months, no refrigeration necessary
